Ladislav Smid is a UFA this summer has not not signed an extension.

As of March 3 the Oilers have had contract discussions with the Oilers.


WUT
I think if you read the whole thing he is trying to say that the Oilers will move Smid to another team while moving MPS and a 2nd for JJ or a similar package.

The other statement is trying to say that the Oilers have not had contract negotiations with Smid as of yet...just a terribly written sentence..

Moving Paajarvi doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now, if he goes then we had damn well better have a similar player with more toughness coming in as he walks out the door.

With Maggie playing the way he is and the traffic jam in our top six (Yak wants in!) It's time to move Hemmer.

I love the guy. He's beena great Oiler for a long time. But his value isn't going to get much higher than it is right now.

I read this article also

Instead of JJ what about Nikitin or Tyutin. They would add some nice skill and size to our top 4.

I agree that we shouldn't move MPS. I am a huge believer that we should move Hemsky though. But not for picks/prospects. Look for a 1 for 1 or package him with something else to try and get a dman or physical player.

I do agree with keeping PRV if he can keep it up. Hemsky is the one to deal for sure to get the dman we need. If CBJ keep playing the way they are do you trade Hemsky for a dman like Tyutin or Nikitin.

^ This. I love Hemsky, and he's been a great guy to watch over the years but the time has come. He's playing well, and could help fill some of the hole's that need filling.

Trade Hemsky for Stafford
Get Penner for cheap
Roll with these lines next year:

Stafford/RNH/Eberle
Hall/Horcoff/Yakupov
PRV/Gagner/Penner

Can we roll with three scoring lines for more than two games before we ditch it? I have reservations with trading away the only 'in his prime years' offensive player we have. Look what's happening to Eberle and RNH right now, do you think the pressure on them is going to go up or down if we trade Hemsky?

Revolving door
Add Musil to that group, I see Musil and Klefbom as clones of Smid, Klefbom I hope has more offensive upside.

If only it was this easy...

I don't think Hemsky can get you Stafford... mainly because just like Rishaug said this morning, Hemsky is under valued around the league, only people who watch him night in and night out know what kind of value he brings..

I also don't think Penner would be effective on the Gagner MPS line, he is too slow to keep up.. That line is thriving because Gagner has the ability to find MPS when he is at full speed... what would Penner do? by the time he gets the the offensive zone the play will be going the other way..

Stafford plays the right side and lets let the Penner thing go. He is playing terrible this year and neither Stafford or Penner bring any grit and toughness.

JJ is playing over 29mins a night his last five or 6 games. I don't think he is as bad as everyone is saying. I think he would be a good 2nd pairing dman. He can move the puck and that is what we need on this team.

Musil for sure. Klefbom seems more like a Bowmeester (Flames version). Not gonna get a ton of points but he'll move the puck and eat up a lot of minutes.

I think its his hockey sense that's in question. Which is why if he gets traded, he'd be on his fourth team at 26 years old. I don't think he's worth the price tag or the term.

This summer you would hope we would be going after a LW that can play in a 2nd or 3rd capacity. These would be my two targets.

Viktor Stalberg...Making 875k this year. 6'3" - 210lbs. Big body and fast skater. Stats are a bit inflated playing on Chicago but I think he would be a perfect fit on this team.

Chris Higgins...Making 1.9 million this year. 6'0" - 200lbs. All round player, not as skilled but can do everything, PK, PP and hits. Can also move to Center if needed.

I see those guys as being better options than Penner or Clowe.

You realize Penner has like 8 points in his last 10 games since getting back in the lineup right?

I love both those players and would much prefer them over Clowe as well.

Jack Johnson and Chris Stewart are two guys on the market that scare me a little. I think both of them carry personalities that could be detrimental to the locker room. Both of them could be useful on the ice, but when talented players bounce around so much at such a young age, it's a tell tale sign of their off ice persona.

Anybody know if pierre marc bouchard from the wild will be a good fit? Seems like he fell off the map and is struggling this year.

Johnson gets underrated around here IMO. He is a good player and is a top 4 defencemen. The only thing is, I wouldn't give up Smid to make room for him. I would much rather keep Smid and acquire Johnson.

Smid - Schultz
Johnson - Petry
Fistric - N.Schultz

Looks a lot better. Smid is the type of Dman we need to keep. If the Blue Jackets want a lot for Johnson, we should look else where. If the oilers plan on trading Smid to make room for Johnson, lets pray the management gets fired ASAP.
